and and he has this civilian area had been made by nature takes pride they want to duck by rockets in the sky people were killed children with my own hands with my own eyes i still am helping our little girls who were killed and get the boys the father and the mother to hold families reddish and under this attack you cannot just pick why is that dark it would seem to me this is the incident this incident consummates continuing intense bombardment of believe it by nato bombs are actually being dropped day and night we all the time hearing sounds of having explosions russia which has always been against ministry means to stifle the protests of live in conflict has recently signed a peace treaty a ten to leave it to try to explain the war in size to start talking after missing the rebels in benghazi and pro productive people here in st louis making money off a side that he believes their release for peaceful solution of this crisis with
both sides saying they are ready for negotiations with the needs are now ready to provide an appropriate location for tolls but people actually few extremely exhausted after months of devastating war which has already taken many many lives and has actually completely destroyed the country's infrastructure. is what i'm referring all share in tripoli that well the libyan was already causing divisions in washington too with lawmakers demanding a bomber explain his charge into libya and account for the expense and lack of progress but political radio's carmen russell sue chance he told us he doesn't believe congress will really pull the plug. the problem is that when there was a prior lawsuit during clinton's foray into the former yugoslavia dennis crucifixion of a group of other congressman even at that time filed a very similar lawsuit saying that it was illegal and it went to a district court but the district court said into the individual congressmen did
not have any sort of standing the reality is i think still a majority of congressmen are you know going to support the the actions in libya and afghanistan and so on congress is not going to you know in mass come and say that we shouldn't be doing this and try to defund it and besides obama is currently using discretionary department of funds discretionary funds to get around it anyway so you know it's a question of how effective would be it works in you know to their benefit we do live in a military industrial complex type of world where they have they have the purse strings they have the power. still a lot ahead for this half hour of news including the tragedy of teens in russia as it struggles to rein in an epidemic even though experts say there's no to all of us remedy it had a report on what coming up for you know a few minutes also russia and china agree on pumping gas though the price proves to be a problem but nonetheless neither leave a summit in the week empty handed after securing billions of dollars in business.
three days into his job and greece's new finance ministers admitted he faces a real war in carrying out a raft of painful reforms to convinces a you kind of parts to give greece new loans is much bigger task that will be to get angry greeks on side to bear more cuts to job services and pay the point that was part of a major cabinet reshuffle to try and calm the deep seated fury being shown on the streets of athens in the way go to syria firth was in the capital with the latest violent protests broke out. classes mean the police and the protests there's still going on. in this. building in the crowd. it is likely that along the fence larry that. people here one thing that actually was going on at the moment the police trying to crowd that violence will breaking out though it might be not taught by a lot of the people on the street fifty nine people dressed in black with the gas masks on they really don't want anyone to feel that it's been said that the people
who are behind the provoking the police people still me think back on the census day even though you can hear that we got nothing that's off by the police they planned out that very time again. they're angry about the economic situation happening in their country and they want to not going to be able to. leave that's really what we can really see the tensions between the people planking. the belief that they're getting it to retaliate stay. with us. well i think you raised that carrie say they're trying to face the fact that the police are trying. they're managing by the looks of things to push back the police actually of the central square itself there's a lot of the protesters who are throwing things where gas masks and we spoke to some of the main organizers from the tea unions to organize a protest today and they said that they wanted it to be peaceful until the end of
june until any of these measures were passed see the police the letting of take us into the crowd that incredibly hard to grieve in the streets not it still pleasant for anyone there's lots of people getting medical treatment around the play. but the violence is really around saying we're not entirely sure if these people when the gas masks that are provoking the police are actually part of the main prey said as he said the people we spoke to said they wanted it to be peaceful and it has been up until now up until earlier today when that provocation happened when the police started to try and push them back a correspondence and sara furthur bring us the latest in the wake of greek journalist to be honest chrysostom it is was also among the general strike protests he blames international bankers for louer greece into a debt from which it no card escape we cannot pay all the money they hear it's their interest rates all the money we take is in order to pay the high interest rate this is this is robbery this is theft this is swindle i can't describe it
anymore and the problem for them now is that people know that they realize that they see their income don't going down they see taxes taxes taxes and nothing else unemployment you think unemployment is this is what they tell me you know realign employment where it's twenty five percent sure and this is a chaotic situation and the owner is possible for this situation is the international monetary fund minister of finance this government has failed. bess's british banks are getting jittery of a greece apparently pulling billions out of funding the euro zone so they don't get stuck anymore for a belgian parliament deputy speaker told me but earlier tonight the bailout cash designed to kill europe struggling economies is being pocketed by the wealthy instead crises like these are considered big opportunities by big financial institutions it was so in the past and it is so today where is the money gone well i think you don't have to look far the money has gone to financial institution to wealthy elites who are actually benefiting from this crisis bailouts what kind of
bailouts true for what purpose that is the question the bear said we had so far was look we give you all the stock spare money without any conditions so you can keep on going doing what you did that is not the kind of bailout that i squat certainly . well bit later this hour we got an interview as well with the german m.p. close peeta villa few shares his views on bailing out greece and why he things e.u. country should look after themselves. the czech republic this last week announced his backing out of the u.s. missile defense program planned for europe because it was frustrated by the diminished role that was now being offered the original plan the place of advanced radar in the country was changed for it to host a less important facility the missile shield supposed to counter potential threats from so-called rogue states like iran and north korea but the plans were facing massive opposition from russia which is concerned that its safety might be compromise they've also been protests in the czech republic itself while the outspoken critics of the project is activist thomas who says such
a system would only fuel global tension. check people don't want such a thing here in this country we feel that this will actually undermine the security of both the czech republic and europe as a continent and so we think that it's completely contradictory to place such a system here in europe this system without incorporating russia without talking to also other it world superpowers make china like india or the following or the pirates that will be the biggest world economies in the in a fine two years is really going to make a lot of tension there on the global scale and so it should be wise and just start thinking about building a security mechanisms and structures that will include all the big super powers not just. here modernized economy cured of corruption is one of the top priorities in president bird vet is to do list in which he outlined russia's directions and petersburg this week the international economic forum
a stage to breathe new life into the country's investment climate and deeded attracted to some of the world's business and political heavyweights in this in our reports. modernization based on stifling corruption d. centralizing power and government reforms all goals voiced by president medvedev at this year's international economic forum here in st petersburg where how russia is going to attempt to become one of the world's biggest and most effective economies was laid out. we shouldn't hesitate to say goodbye to many bad habits we should focus on the following improving the investment climate in russia to create new jobs in the regions the creation of a modern police service and over security forces improving the effectiveness of the justice system and finally the modernization of government of course the main bad habit as the president calls it is corruption which he says is choking russia's economy this was his message to the country's officials that don't do business according to the law. the noose around the neck of those who practice corruption
should be tightened on the whole of russia or agrees with this without any exception if the government should be purged of corruption in a more decisive way and for that purpose we should in harms way those suspected of corruption are dismissed from public service another issue that's hampering russia's economic development is that not being a member of the world trade organization lately we're hearing from a lot of officials that access into the w t o for russia is possible by the end of this year the president agrees but says only under very specific circumstances. we have long been ready to join the w t o more than many other countries small or large still we are asked to make an unseemly large number of concessions this kind of approach is unacceptable russia will not agree to any evidently unfavorable solutions and of course presumably the one question on all of the minds of the business executives the top innovators and world leaders will president medvedev
run for reelection well it was the official last question of the form and this is what medvedev had to say yes. when i consider it appropriate to tell you whether i will do it or not i will come out and say it this forum is not the best place for that one thing you can be sure of is that i will be able to avoid making that statement you will not have to wait much longer. every story requires some kind of intrigue for the boys they'll be no interest in living. so let's keep the intrigue a bit longer. and certainly no intrigue surrounding what platform advantage would run on if he does announce he's running for reelection it will be all about modernization reporting from st petersburg and use the way our city. but us judge this week called the case against an alleged russian gun running to boots unconvincing and called the prosecutor's evidence thin boots lawyers claim the united states don't have the jurisdiction to prosecute him and want the charges
dismissed but he's more important new york explains. he is the russian citizen america fought relentlessly to adopt it or boot was secretly and swiftly extradited to the u.s. seven months ago and this may be where he stays indefinitely it sound guilty on arms smuggling and terrorism related charges if he is convicted. he's looking at life there's no parole there's no early release in the federal system really the only way in the federal system to get a reduction in your sentence. a significant reduction is if you cooperate with the united states government some have argued mr bush needs to be on captain america's team however captain america is being accused of playing dirty and illegally to remove the air cargo business man from thailand according to documents released by wiki leaks all levels of washington top to bottom mounted political pressure
against bangkok to gain custody of boot in a us cable dated august thirteenth two thousand and nine us president barack obama was urged to call thailand's prime minister directly about boot the us attorney general and state department were encouraged to call the thai ambassador highlighting the massive drug enforcement administration commitment to thailand and the us ambassador in bangkok urged the thai government to issue a public statement of disappointment at the judge's ruling not to extradite boot the way things stand right now they're willing to flaunt every international law to get what they want and that means doing all these illegal things in the case of the mood to extradite him or should say kidnap and who was arrested in bangkok in march two thousand and eight during a u.s. sting operation he was charged with conspiring to sell weapons to colombian fark rebels on two occasions the thai court rejected america's extradition request when an entourage of armed u.s.
agents removed him from thailand following a decision of the thai government his extradition was still not legally approved the covert operation was kept secret from russia boots family and his attorney the case was not finalized and was moved to the us america used various means political another's outside the boundaries of due legal process to get victor boot that means that victor boot is not getting a fair deal to this day ty officials have not provided official documents explaining the legal grounds behind boots extradition. meantime victor boot remains in the u.s. prison held in solitary confinement his wife doubts her husband will receive a fair trial from the country she says violated international and bilateral laws to get him. it's clear to everyone that the case has long been moved from the sphere of law to politics i think or rather i would love to think that the american court
is unbiased but i have strong doubts about it because i think such pressure could be put on anyone including the jury. the country accusing victor boot of arms dealing now finds itself accused of political arm twisting come october an american jury will decide picked up a future wanted a political pressure exercised by the u.s. army evidently the arena for nine artsy new york. this is a long and complicated case if you want more background more analysis on our web site out there we have on the data on the timeline of the victim case you can see it all unfolded on line from. elections in egypt my people supposed as the country's current prime minister says
a new constitution must be drafted first the country continues to be under military rule meantime during which around seven thousand people have been arrested since february revolution activist david keyes spoke to us he says the uprising to restore democracy so far change very little some have been jailed simply for criticizing the government others have been brought up on spiritus charges of quote unquote insulting the military but increasingly and certainly given the incredible high number of detentions detentions of civilians not attentions of people who have you know tried to undermine the regime but people simply criticizing the military this is a very dangerous trend egyptian dissidents and bloggers who were imprisoned in military prisons and they describe incredible torture they describe electrocution they describe waterboarding to describe regular beatings and this was the egyptian military that stood behind mubarak until the last minute so while there have been gains and we hope that egypt has
a brighter future ahead of it there are still many many challenges that it still has to overcome if egypt is going to move towards democracy and liberalism and openness in the west in fact is a very important role to play. the u.s. is stepping up its our man drone attacks on yemen claiming to target al qaeda militants there's been reports of a secret cia base being built in the persian gulf for the sole purpose of taking down anti american terrorists if they managed to win through and yemen's power struggle it's all over one hundred people have been killed in the past two weeks the witnesses on the ground say they included a lot more civilians than was being admitted in the u.k. attack helicopters and commandos squads are being prepared for possible deployment of the country pretty. jeremy called been told is he believes the west is doing the direct opposite of what yemen needs stability if the west goes in with our starts bombing on behalf of unclear who then i think then that will make the situation markedly worse yemen has huge poverty and social issues it's the poorest country in
the region it's median age population is less than eighteen has the greatest social discrepancies of any country in the whole region the last thing it needs is more bombing what it needs is peace what it needs is people coming together and it needs overseas aid to help it develop any government political. class to bring together all of the factions and all of the interest across the i cannot believe that cia drones are likely to bring this about and in their haste to be involved the us look to me who are making all the mistakes they made in afghanistan in one nine hundred seventy nine when they rushed in as part of the cold war armed anyone that turned up offering to fight on their behalf and thus was born the taliban. was one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world rushes know being jolted into action to try to reverse the worrying trend but experts say it's not that simple because there are several causes that can lead to tragedy if left unnoticed next artie's exam the
boy reports that compassion is a cure but sadly it's a remedy that's all too hard to come. just days before final exams a t.v. crew was reporting and students gearing up for their lives that lay had of them the teachers pointed to bullying at that broader student who it seemed had her future figured out which way should play station i want to become a journalist because it's a very interesting and creative profession which would open doors to the world with this yet but instead of a school living celebration pulling his classmates gathered like a funeral something she may not be the best she ended everything and hank herself with the genders and she will have been getting ready for the exam for weeks down to lena was the one who works it hardest of all of her note of math problems and she was very novice she wanted to graduate isn't a great student. in many countries this chasseur exams in late december and early june sees peaks in the number of children taking their own lives but in russia it's
a year round problem roughly one and a half thousand children and teenagers kill themselves every year it's much higher than the average seen in the united states and britain. problem is so out of hand that when i was a filming the president's about it he found it hard to believe that the figures are truly frightening every year thousands children make attempts on their lives at this issue girls are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide yet it's still boys who by a long way actually succeed in killing themselves bigger is different his tried to take his life three times the latest the time just six months ago. i just had enough i was tired of fighting with my mom my girlfriend left me i was fed up with studying i couldn't stand seeing the streets and hearing all this noise i just wanted everything to end and i want to peace what's driving the problem in russia
is what experts call a low emotional literacy psychological or psyche. it is underdeveloped and not easily available down there is the stigma. committed in the state of emotional distress which builds over time. even as parents notice that many would rather ignore them than to take their kid to a psychologist or psychiatrist which added to the continuing social and economic shift making it harder for parents to provide for their children leaving little time for talking and listening this morning meant is that it catered to children who have fallen victim to adult biases alcoholism drug abuse prostitution and i want to those can drive a child to take his or her own life but then the center of this overly wicked figure stands one that since policy frightening almost commonplace it represents what experts say is the main reason why russia is living here up in the number of
teen suicides about ice and difference seeing no evil hearing now cries out of work or artsy. news stories making headlines right now tonight a suicide bomber struck his convoy got to stop the vehicle was carrying german soldiers and it was destroyed in the attack but nato says there are no true casualties however at least two civilians did die in the explosion the taliban says it carried out the bombing. somalia's promises resigned for what he called the sake of the somali people the war torn countries without effective government for two decades now with much of the south controlled by islamist extremists the pair met earlier refused to go despite the looming deadline to leave in order to clear the air between the president the parliament speaker although he had public popularity his high level support was proving divisive with a shaky transitional government which has been extended for another year. the operator of japan's devastated fukushima nuclear plant now says it will open the
doors of one of its reactor buildings to vent radioactive gases that's to try to prevent another explosion tepco also admits it underestimated just how much radiation it would have to filter from coolant water there the latest setback comes after the u.n. nuclear agency criticize tepco for its slow response and concealing the true the magnitude of radioactive leaks james corbett it's not mine journalists he says the risk to people's health remains very real. any new leaks of any kind are going to be an incredible burden on the efforts that are already underway to try to clean up the water or decontaminated because they are now running out of space to actually store the contaminated water in the fukushima in the immediate vicinity of the plant and i believe within two weeks they're actually going to run out of space so they're trying to get a system on line for treating the water but apparently the test for that is going
to be pushed back another few days it's already been pushed back from last friday there is no such thing as a safe level of radiation exposure that any level of radiation exposure increases the risk of cancer and how. negligible that risk may be with any particular person on any particular day at any particular spot when it's averaged out over a large population like is living in the fukushima region unfortunately means there will be over time an increase in cancer rates there and it's really just a question of how many. this is our team from moscow thanks for being with us my name is kevin i'll take those headlines for you in a couple of minutes time to add up minutes to be precise. the.
hello this is a scene from moscow manager kevin now in our top stories in our news review of the week nato has admitted it's a struggle killed civilians in a botched bombing in tripoli libyan officials report two children among the dead raising questions over the blogs plans to pound colonel gadhafi to submission. america's accuser twisting thailand's arm as a new york judge casting doubt over the galaxy of extraditing alleged russian arms smuggler victim to the states. and greece's new man on the money rolls up his sleeves to steer the debt stricken countries reforms for a furious public rage against even deeper cuts in athens. it's going to midnight thirty one and it's not just the greeks who are angry at the sacrifices they're being forced into for financial help from europe the germans aren't happy either
about paying for the weaknesses of their neighbors next than a german m.p. tells us why he thinks e.u. countries should look after themselves. greece and portugal should leave the euro to save the european union according to german ruling paul t.m.p. klaus pizza will show mr walsh what will happen if you keep bailing them out. you know and you would treaties. it was regulated that there must be any bailout because. otherwise you. you would. ruin the applique finances of those countries who are contributing to it. as long as each country is responsible for its budget it has to take full responsibility and the only right answer to that is no bailout
how do the bailouts affect the german economy in germany we are making a lot of efforts to keep public debt under control. we just amended our constitution we put in there so call it shouldn't come as a dept break. which. defines the steps we have to take with our. budgets. in order to come to the zero nine and then start paying the debt back. and it is dangerous if this is. infected by. policy national policy of other europe otter's. where it's it is an invitation to a bigger neighbor policy and you say ok if i don't get any more money.
